Just wondering what kind of guitar that was that Jerry was playing during the 1987 tour that is showed on Two from the vault IV. It's the red one with the wharf rat logo? or is that a tiger I'm not sure...but nits an awesome guitar. Anybody know what kind it was?

Tiger. I'll let the experts weigh in (as I most certainly am not), but here's a good place to get an overview:

Garcia played Les Paul 's during the anthem of the sun period (67-68)...Garcia had a black Strat he goofed on in the late 80s...same guitar he hooked up to midi for the early midi spaces...

That's right - a Gold Top and a Custom.

Didn't he also play a Standard for a while (I'm thinking during some Summer shows) in '71?

Here's another shot from the following night. He doesnt look nearly as loaded to me and you can get a little better look at that Les Paul too.

Notice how the pickups look a bit small? I thought it looked odd. Did a bit of Googling and found this thread on a Les Paul forum: http://www.lespaulforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=178016

It's a Deluxe, not a Standard. My bad.
